On December 3rd, 2013, ProQuest will be discontinuing the old Micromedia platform for our Toronto Star: Pages of the Past database, making it only available on the new ProQuest platform. The database will also be undergoing a name change: ProQuest Historical Newspapers: The Toronto Star.
We'll be making changes behind the scenes to descriptions in our catalogue, database pages, Subject Guides, etc., but please prepare for the switch in December and in the new semester beyond, especially faculty members having to possibly update their teaching materials and assignments.
If you would like to try out this product on its new platform now, go into any of our other ProQuest databases (e.g. ABI/INFORM Global), click the "1 database" link in it, and then clear all checkmarks and add a checkmark next to "ProQuest Historical Newspapers: The Toronto Star (1894-2011)".
